The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 and 41 were instant sensations upon their release in 2020. That’s particularly surprising because the Oyster Perpetual is one of the easiest watches to get, in general. In this case, though, you’re facing waitlist for these ones now. Why is that. What makes them so special?
It’s simply the truly beautiful pastel dial colors.
What Is the Oyster Perpetual Tiffany?
When you buy a Rolex Oyster Perpetual, you can choose from green, yellow, pink and more. However, of the eight colors available, one has particular appeal. The Oyster Perpetual in a shade of turquoise gained the nickname of the Oyster Perpetual Tiffany because the color resembles that shade of blue from the famous jeweler.
Good luck trying to get an Oyster Perpetual Tiffany.
Why Is the Supply So Limited?
It appears official Rolex authorized dealers actually receive fewer Oyster Perpetuals than even the extraordinarily popular (and very limited in production) Rolex Submariner. This means there is extraordinarily short supply and therefore limited availability. Of the few pieces Rolex authorized dealers receive, there are even fewer of the “Tiffany” blue ones. In fact, they may get only one or two a year. The waiting list at some retailers is already well over two years.
How Can I Buy a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Tiffany?
The natural result of this situation is that many customers search for a Rolex Oyster Perpetual on the secondary market. Buying a pre-owned Rolex is often a great option but remember the model is still rare and, unlike authorized Rolex dealers, pre-owned Rolex sellers are not required to cap prices at the suggested retail price. On the contrary, Oyster Perpetual Tiffany watches sell for more that two times the retail price and they sell quite well.
The simple reality of the law of supply and demand along with Rolex’s commitment to limiting production to only that which they are certain they can produce without sacrificing quality means if you get a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Tiffany, you’ll either wait for longer than two years or you’ll buy on the secondary market. If you go with a pre-owned, make sure you buy from a reputable Rolex seller.
